RISING ABOVE THE CROWD
March 27
Hip-hop artist Macklemore surprised the crowd at the We Day celebration at Seattle’s KeyArena.
Over the past couple years, it’s been amazing to watch the rise of Macklemore and collaborator/producer Ryan Lewis and how their music has been interwoven with major moments in our city’s history. I’ll never forget watching the “My Oh My” tribute to Dave Niehaus at the Seattle Mariners opening day 2011, as well as listening to “Same Love” when Washington state legalized same-sex marriage in November 2012. — Erika Schultz
